On September 28 I'm getting a new left hip.

I'm going into hospital (AZ St. Jan's hospital in Brugge, Belgium) on Sept. 27. On the 28th they start to operate at 7.15am local time.

They're going to use a new method, called ASR resurfacing prothese. http://www.activejoints.com/resurfacing.html

I will be in hospital for about 5/6 days and then about 6 weeks revalidation at home, meaning: physiotherapy every day and excercising on the home trainer.

So....No chasing sheep for a while

You know you're in my prayers, Titia.  Just REST and do NOT push it without the help of that therapist.  Your body will heal wonderfully!

Titia~
I always knew you were HIP !

I hold you in thought~

Lottsa luck gal ...

When the hip wants to hop
you'll have to come back
to dance around the pool
like you did back when
we gathered in New Poet Richey
in a circle of friends~

LOVE YOU~

Thanks Sunshine, I started to read your book and will sure finish it during my resting hours.

Marge, I haven't forgotten and wish dearly I could and who knows will again some day. I'm still homesick for those wonderful days in USA, meeting all my lovely poet friends.
It's been 4 years now, but it seemed yesterday. I often think about the wonderfull time we spend together. And without internet and Ron's pages blue, I wouldn't even have known you existed my dear friend.

Hey, dutchie!! I saw you dance with the OLD hips...can't begin to imagine how well you will do with the new one!


Take care of yourself and do what the doctors tell you and make sure you you follow up with that physical reconditioning so that you will finally get over all this. One day we will be saying....

HIP! HIP!
HOORAY!!!!!

Hey Mack, those memories last a life time, just as the one when you hip hopped the bed springs and fell through, remember???

Rae, I'm a lucky gal to get this new method.

Iliana, thanks for the thoughts.

Sue, thank you dear, hope all is well with you too.

Ethel, thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

Martyjo, sure hope I'll dance again one day.

Two more nights and then I'm off for at least a week. I'll ask Muys to keep you updated.

Ok, one short night and I'll be off to hospital. See you all again in about a week or maybe bit more. Depends how crippled I am by then, my puter is upstairs.

Love you all, Titia

Hipster Titia, we will all be waiting for your next series of hip-hop stories. Get someone to haul that computer downstairs! Speedy healing thoughts on the way.
